Ski Lifts in Laax
The Flims Laax ski lift system is impressive. The ski lifts operate from 8.30 – 4.30 daily using a hands free lift ticket system, and transport you, quickly and efficiently, anywhere on the mountain.
Laax Ski Lifts
There are 4 cable cars, 7 gondolas, 8 chair lifts and 10 drag lifts. You seldom queue for more than 5 minutes at the most and then only at the busiest times. Weekends are usually the busiest, but even then the number of skiers and riders on the mountains is typically little more than half of Flims Laax’s 43,000 maximum lift capacity.
The Flims Laax’s ski map is easy to navigate and from each base station town, one can quickly get above the tree line by cable car or gondola for great skiing. From Fallera and Laax, make your way to Curnius from where you can take a 4- man lift to Crap Sogn Gion. Here you can repeatedly session two of the three parks which are supported by drag lifts. Recently however, Flims Laax has built their ‘xbox’ gondola which has eased the traffic from the Laax base station and whisks you straight up to Crap Sogn Gion. From Flims, skiers have two options, either to take a cable car to Plaun or take a combination of three lifts to Cassons for some awesome free-ride skiing.
A shuttle bus service runs between the towns of Flims, Laax and Fallera so you can easily get back to your home resort if you’ve decided to finish your day’s skiing or start your après ski in one of the other two towns, but be prepared to pay up to CHF10 for the privilege, which, being Swiss, will always be on time regardless of the weather conditions.
